We had a great time in Madrid last weekend. We went to celebrate the 10th anniversary of our relocation from London to Madrid. My friend Duncan organised a reunion of many old colleagues – some still with Barclays but others who have moved on to new jobs. I was amazed to see some old faces and struggled to remember names.
I was pleased to see my old Spanish teacher and her husband. She was disappointed in the way that all her hard work in drumming Spanish into my head had evaporated over the last seven years. To tell the truth I was able to understand a great deal of the language, especially when spoken slowly and clearly.
I took a nice photo of the Gran Via with shiny post-rain streets and a little indigo in the sky.
